Four stories from the Tees by Garry Newmarch: ‘Find the Missing Tallymen’, ‘A Cut Above the Rest’, ‘Too Much Well Altogether, Sir’, and ‘The Loss of the (nearly) Good Ship “W*ttenb*rg”.’ Newmarch’s droll accounts of incidents in the life of a Customs & Excise officer build a vivid and comic picture of life on the Riverside in the seventies
